The Auction is one of the most expected moments in every year's Symposium. It is an important activity because it raises money for the Student Travel Grant Fund, which has allowed many colleagues from around the world to travel to the symposium to share their knowledge and experience about sea turtles. Both Live and Silent, the Auction draws in a lot of people looking for finding that nice or crazy turtle item to bring home, contribute to the Society and of course have a lot of fun.
We'd like to remind everybody to start collecting their sea turtle auction items to bring to Huatulco, whether they are handscrafts, t-shirts, sea turtle memorabilia, alcohol or a special talent, everything is welcome and everything could reach a nice price during bidding!
For this year, we would like to have less plastic and more organics... more handscrafts and less industrial (and of course, more alcohol!)... But just about any fun sea turtle stuff will do... Huatulco will be the perfect background for a fantastic Auction!
